Thieving Slum Landlord of Halifax

To the landlords of Halifax who prey on new and international students, naive to the world of rental properties - you are criminals. Your cunning and deceitful ads for "charming rooms in a character home" with rent far over priced for the decrepit state of the house, are only the first of many crimes. You further the assault on our student loans by conning us out of our damage deposits year after year for "garbage removal fees" for which we never received notices; endless cleaning hours post-move out, although the place never received such treatment; and then to have the audacity to "forward the bill for re-painting", after we covered up the hideous colours you selected to discourage male renters, only to return to the house months later to find the rooms untouched. You came to our house any time you pleased without notice and threatened to cease the never-ending yet always needed repairs if you had to give us the notice required by law. And you came to our house and drove around town drunk. Be ashamed of yourselves, you thieving slum landlords. —Exploited and Poor Student Renter
